Loring House

Portland, Maine

A contemporary vision for the landscape at Loring House provides renewed life to a former hospital that had been transformed into public housing.  The interior courtyard has been improved with the removal of over-mature birches and the addition of a pedestrian plaza and perennial beds around a redefined drop-off circle. The rear yard, which sits in the shadow of one of Portland's largest oak trees, is enhanced with a formal picnic area and pergola built into the gentle slope.
